Switzerland
I'm an ongoing scientific illustrator studying Scientific Visualization at the ZHdK in Zurich and I'm currently in my second year of studies after I studied Biology for five semesters at the UZH in Zurich. Though I study and live most of the week in a flat in Zurich with my roomies, I spend most of my weekends and holidays at home in Zernez in the middle of the Engadin valley.

My interests are biology, especially zoology, paleontology and evolution, since I always loved to know about nature and it's inhabitants. I'm also interested in medicine, history (Vikings, Germans, Romans, Rhaetians and other ancient cultures), enviromental science and geoscience ranging from Earth to extraplanetar systems. I also keep pets (birds, fish, amphibians), go hunt, hike and dive. It's safe to say that I got a very vast field of interests.
One of my other great passions besides of science are sci-fi and gaming, meaning that I'm a sucker for the Aliens (AvP) and the Halo franchise. Though I tend to draw a lot of fanart in my spare time, I'm not one of those fangirls who pretend to be one of their original Mary Sue characters in real life, draw tons of smut and ERP all day to compensate for something or weird stuff like that. I'm quite a reasonable fan.
If you look at my gallery, you'll mostly find either scientific stuff like paleontology or zoology I do at the university or sci-fi and fanart I do in my spare time :)

My mother tongue is Rumansh but I speak German fluently as well and I'm quite good with English. I also understand a good part from French and Italian and to a certain degree Spanish. As you see, communication shouldn't be a problem if you do want to speak about my art. Comments of any kind are welcomed! :D

Current Residence: Zernez and Zurich
Favourite genre of music: Metal and Rock
Favourite cartoon character: Stitch, Wickie, Darkwing Duck
Personal Quote: Hell is not where we'll go to after death. It's a place in our hearts that'll make us suffer and pay for our sins whilst we're still alive.
Interests
Now since I'm finally done with my big projects for college, allowing me to breathe and have a bit of spare time again, let me too wish you a happy new year! I hope 2014 was a good year for you all and wish for an even better 2015 for you all :D

Personally 2014 was a very productive and successful year for me (also reached the 40k pageviews!) and I've learned valuable lessons about patience. It already started off really good with my first publication in March, announced myself for an exchange semester in Reykjavik, made a lot of money in summer, have been acknowledged by the professors for my big improvement in art (more improvement needed!) and continued projects in college that turned out really good. One was actually so good it had to be cancelled, since we (my group) recherched so well, we proved our team leading archeologist that his results aren't right, so he needs to check all the data again, before we can continue D:
All the success came with the price of having almost no spare time nor vacations this year and boy I worked like an animal this year... Seriously, especially December was busy as hell for me, so I wasn't even able to check out the Halo5 beta or do something else but work and I'm badly in need of rest and some sleep now, ugh. Guess I just overworked myself, so maybe that's why I got sick in the first place (the doctor found out what it is, so now I'm taking meds against it and I should be fine in a few months again) Good thing I'll be off to Lisbon in Portugal for a week at the 18th for studies with my profs and classmates and have a break from college for two weeks afterwards before college starts again. I just need some snow for skiing, dammit!
Oh and I got a lovely kitten again now and a super tame cockatiel who's always sitting on my shoulder, begging for being pet and being a whiny bitch when I'm leaving him with the other birds. That and the fact that he got a golden crest is why I called him Maika ^^

Stuff to do for 2015:
Getting my hair cut. Just did so last week, so I now look like a human being again. I didn't cut it for a year, so it grew so long I could literally wipe my ass with it D:
Doing the last two driving tests this month. So I'll get my damn driver's license for sure or else I'll have to do everything from the start again -.-
Improving my gallery. Cleaning old stuff and adding all the new stuff from college. It really has to be done now in order to make a good impression when I send in my papers for Reykjavik. They'll probably check on me online, so my internet file has to be flawless!
Doing my portfolio for the exchange semester in Iceland. Hope you'll wish me luck on that! =)
Set up that Tumblr for more presence on the internet I hope.
Doing art of course! I hope I can give the comic a go now if my spare time allows it. At least I wrote down the whole storyboard, so technically seen it's ready for being drawn. Really, what Dawn, Steve, Salvador and the others will go through will be kickass!

Also do you remember when I did Bleigiessen last year in order to tell the future? I got to say that the snarling wolf thing (deep friendship) turned out to be true. I've set my priorities and decided to stay away from stuff that turns me down. I can only advice you to do the same. Throw everything that bothers you on the long run out of your life and you'll feel a lot better than being turned down constantly, be it people annoying you in real life, corrupt Halo groups or other regular drama on the internet you can easily evade. So I did some snarling and embraced the deep friends I got instead :D
So me and my friends did it again this year and for the fun of it I'll tell you what I got. It's multiple pretty clear results though. An owl that stands for a wise decision. I hope I did ^^ A flame what stands for giving up on bad habits. I thought I already did last year by burning up that shit for good. Eh, maybe I can put more effort into it, haha. A woman again that stands for secret wishes becoming true. Don't know what that could be but the one from last year was a fatty whilst this one was skinny, so maybe I'll loose weight or something? XD And a person raising it's arm in glorious victory. I have no idea what that's standing for but I guess I'll beat a goal in my life? Either that or Leonidas shows up kicking me from the next cliff whilst yelling SPARTAAAAA!!! XD

Also I decided to show my stats again. It's a try but if the bullshit starts over again, I'll hide them again. So behave, ok? Also just because you can see what I'm commentig on again, that doesn't means you should comment on all of it. My time per day is limited and I'd hate to have to waste it with spam ;)

So after a long ass journal, have a nice 2015 ad help making it a good one for everyone! :D

Hey, nice to hear from you again! =)
And thanks a lot for your compliment! I'm glad you see some progress in my work. The Halo thing became a solo project of mine now, but I really hope I'll be able to improve more and produce material that'll keep you interested ^^
